ID: CC20592
Colour-zoned cubic Fluorite crystals to 1.5 cm on edge form an intergrown cluster on a flat bed of stubby, translucent milky-white Quartz crystals from the Yaogangxian mine in Hunan Province, China.  The cluster is a jumble of interpenetrant twins and is interesting in that different pairs intersect at quite different angles.  These crystals have deep purple zoning with lighter purple interiors and randomly mottled face centres, displaying their zoning to full advantage when back-lit.  Four smaller Fluorite cubes sit separately on the matrix and are equally well-zoned but lacking the mottled central zone.  A terrific and striking Fluorite from the Yaogangxian mine.
